air that stops breathing
From our education system, parental guide, we tend to follow wisdom,
mythology, science, knowledge that have been existing and continue to
receive all the information. We also tend to continue to develop what
we have received through transport of information becoming something
that is innovative with all reason of humankind needs of today’s
life. There is probably a missing link can be found out during the process
of interpretation or application of the transported information.
I percept, that the meaning of the symbolic object and the transport
of the information are distinguished by time, range of culture, and
economical status of a society.
In a world that continuously request for changes, from time to time,
I see there is no difference than what how an organic process can work.
I see that humankind becomes like a flow of a streaming river. It looks
wild, but it goes into the same direction. It is a direction with no
ends, like the ocean, the openly wide space.
The mind that we keep in our common language has been selected by our
individual way of life. The life that we feel now is no more the same
like yesterday. Things change, nothing remains.
I don’t see any necessity to sacrifice myself as part of a duty.
I regret the history of mankind that follows the step of Alexander the
Great for the search of a new paradise, became a strategic knowledge
of supremacy or the competition of power. The ancient histories that
we follow through the process of religious supremacies or colonialism
have been retaining in our culture and influenced our today’s
developments as humankind in the society.
I regret that the history has to go through blood, killing field, massacre
and especially the lost of our own life, in any form or aspect.
The death of a fish and its lover
I consciously choose fish as a symbolic object that represent the mythology,
which has been believed since the ancient time until now. I am regarding
the use of a fish as a symbol in the perspective of believes, religions,
myth, and knowledge. See “fish as symbol”
„UGO“ is the mind that I have been loosing, the heart that
I left behind, the throat of my own that is slit. The lost of Ugo, is
the lost of spirit I have been trying to maintain. “UGO”
is a meeting between a lover and the death of existence, a transformation
from the visible into the unknown. Disappearance of potential roles,
into another being that is free.
The time that counts down
Trying to understand the time that presence during the change itself
is an effort to put my body into the independency of time. A second
is not a second as we know what a second means. I try to follow the
deepest timing that the body produces. By listening to the heart beat
and formulating with the air I breath, there should be another time
is not able to be defined by the standard measuring of time.
I call it, the dissolving of the common awareness.
It is not to reach any certain meditation’s level. It is an individual
deliberation to free the mental abundance. Eliminating oneself from
any constructed borders by history, political background or culture
that identify our presence.
The vulnerable Romantic
“Ugo” will be presented in a kind of romantic set, referring
to the images that are common for public eyes, for example images that
could be taken in the field of graphic design media for advertising,
a movie scene, and realistic-photography.
The illogical placement of the objects is supposed to give more specific
intension into the live performance.
The fishes (death trout with guts) that are fresh in the beginning of
the performance will slowly change their physical form, they become
physically real, although the are death fishes.
